I'm sure I'm going to hell for watching syfy on Sunday but oh well, at least I won't be alone! Worked yesterday so took today off. It's been a busy week in our household, what with Alivia turning five. Birthday? More like birth week:) There was something almost every day.

It's an important month for her because not only did she turn five but she will also be starting kindergarten. She's excited now, but I bet when the day comes she'll feel and act differently. I don't think she understands that the friends she's made these last four years at day care will be going with her. We only know of one little girl.

On a different subject. Do you think the extreme heat is affecting our tires? Two days in a row I witnessed a blowout on the interstate, and it got me to thinking. One happened right in front of me, and I could see how it could easily have turned into an accident. The vehicle lost control for a moment, thick ribbons of tire went flying. I had to swerve to avoid running over the biggest piece. As I continued down the road I took note of all the rubber on the shoulder, seeing more than usual.

The heat has always been wicked in Florida but lately seems hotter than usual. And when you have to be out in it you feel the effects fairly early on. It literally sucks the life right out of ya! Thank god for the relief of air conditioning.

I was watching Syfy during the weekend, too. I caught a bit of Beyond Sherwood Forest.

I saw rubber flying off the tires of a semi-truck once while I was driving on trip. Scared the bejesus out of me and made me thankful I'd maintained a considerable distance just on general principles. The potential for an accident was too high for comfort. The wicked heat is all over the country and I'm sure it could be a negative factor with all our tires.

For different reasons I'll be going to hell as well but then I'll get to be with friends:) ~Nancy
